How do I become a Christian?

Have you heard the Good News?

First, the bad news . . .

Every human being has a sin problem, and the penalty for sin is eternal separation from God in a literal place called hell. Regardless of how good we think we are or how good we try to be, no amount of good works can ever overcome our sin problem (Ephesians 2:8–9).

And now, the good news . . .

God, who is rich in mercy, provided for our salvation by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die in our place and receive our sins in His own body on the cross (1 Peter 2:24). When Jesus died as our substitute, He paid the penalty for the sins of all mankind. On the third day, He rose back to life victorious.

When you put your faith alone in Christ alone, your sins are forgiven and you receive the free gift of eternal life.

The Gospel is 10 words:

“Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead.”
